UseModWiki is a wiki engine written in the Perl programming language. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License. Pages in UseModWiki are stored in ordinary files, not in a relational database. Something similar to the interface can be seen in MediaWiki with the classic skin.
Websites using UseModWiki
The first wiki to use UseModWiki's test versions was Clifford Adams's own usemod.com wiki, which had been running on AtisWiki since October 11, 1999. The second wiki to use UseModWiki, the MeatballWiki created by Adams and Sunir Shah and dedicated to online communities, was also installed on that same usemod.com Web site on April 24, 2000.
From January 15, 2001 until early 2002, UseModWiki was used to run Wikipedia. All language instances of Wikipedia have since been moved over to MediaWiki.
WikiWikiWeb's sister wiki the Adjunct, started in July 2005, also runs on UseModWiki.
